new guy-70 brake upgrade question

Hey Guys,
First post so here goes. First off, I'm not very experienced with the mechanical work but trying to learn.Recently picked up a 70 camaro with a 307(2 barrel) and 350 at. Car is in real good shape cosmetically and running. Doesn't have power brakes. Disc up front and drums in the rear. Pedal is real mushy and takes a ton of pressure to stop so its parked for now. I'd like to replace the master and add a booster. I understand the booster requires vacuum or its useless. Anyone have any tips on where to run a vacuum line? From what I've read it will come from either the carb or the intake. Anyone have experience with this particuliar upgrade on this model?
Here's a couple of pics.

Welcome, Sean - nice Camaro and hope you enjoy the new journey.
Generally, the vacuum for booster would be directly from the manifold behind the carb.
There would be a 11/32 inch nipple plus 1/8 inch nipple for AT, and a nipple for the A/C door source.

No carb connection to booster.

Re: new guy-70 brake upgrade question

THanks Everett. Since I posted this, I've continued my journey of gathering knowledge regarding this setup. My brother inlaw is going to assist me with this upgrade it looks like. Last weekend we upgraded the Alternator, replaced the valve cover gaskets and had to replace the water pump due to the ear that the power steering pump mounts to being broken off. Great stuff and learning alot.

Here's a pic of my daily driver. I'm really enjoying both cars.
